On the first night in penang, we went to Gurney drive where you can find quite a number of food stalls and its quite popular. Its a bit different compare with the last time we visit as the food there not really as tasty as last time so we just have 1 bowl of asam laksa and prawn mee.
One i like most is “Muar Chee”, is a something like dol dol that mix with blend peanut.
After the dinner at gurney, we went to Batu Feringhi as along the road side infront of the hotels you can see a lot of stalls selling bags, t-shirts, dvds and others. It just like pasar malam but you can’t find stall selling thing to eat.
They next day morning, we went to Wat Chayamangkalaram is it a Siam and Thai temple. Both temple is just across the road and we went in to give some donations for repair works on the buddha statue.
After that we went to Pulau Tikus but its not an island as its just an area they call it Pulau tikus. Not sure why that area is call Pulau Tikus and that’s doesn’t bother us as we just want to find the Mee Mamakat Seng Lee cafe. This mee mamak was introduce by Axian and it caught our eye when it show on tv program so we get the address.
Its not really hard to find this coffee shop as you can see it on the main road of Jalan Burma. Compare with KL mee mamak this one is slightly different on the sauce taste, overall consider tasty. We just order 1 plate to share as we only want to taste it and continue to look for others foods.
Off we go to Kek Lok Si Templebut we didn’t go up to the temple as we been there before. We stop at the pasar for asam laksa as that place is famous for it and we had 2 bowl. The taste is just perfect with the combination of the ingredients that make it delicious.
We walked up to the walkway to the temple as along the walkway there is stalls selling souvenirs, we get some for our friends and we saw one uncle just open for business as we reach there quite early not much people around. Just amazing how long does this uncle takes to take out all the things he sell? see photo below.
I think is a bit small to see here, actually behind Jun is all the things that the uncle going to take out before he can go into the small shop.
